The Book of Genesis
Cain slew his brother Abel in the field

"And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. [8] And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?[9] And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. [10] And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand; " [11]    Genesis 4:8-11

The books of reference used for this study of the book of Genesis were the Bible, King James Version, called "The Companion Bible", Publisher Kregel; Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, numbered to the Hebrew, Chaldee, and Greek, and English, coded to the Strong's Concordance numbers.

Other sources were also used besides these references, but they were the major source of the study. Of course without the leading by the Holy Spirit, there would be no understanding of the truths, for all the truth of the Scriptures are revealed to us by God's Spirit.

John 15:26
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

John 16:13-14
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
